This was recommended to us and a group of four went to lunch. This is a lovely little place with friendly service and very good food. Be warned the portions are large. Next time I will have a starter portion of pasta as a main course. Recommended.

As always, a lovely meal and an attentive waitress, who shows us to our favourite seat every time we go, and knows just what wine we want every time too lol.. Wish there were special deals for the weekdays, as I am sure that many others would take up the offers. And we would definitely go more often.

Tucked away from the High Street but it's a real gem. For a Saturday nights it was not busy at all but the service was excellent and friendly but unobtrusive. Food was a good quality. I ordered from the 'specials' menu - sardines and calves' liver both cooked perfectly. The tiramisu was dry nice as well. This place deserves to... More

By far the best place to eat in Staines - great quality food that is always fresh and tastey. Service is both attentive and personalised - with welcoming staff offering a friendly service always. A bit of a hidden gem - it's location meaning that many people still don't know about it, and where passing trade is less than further... More

We went on a Friday evening at about 6:30. It was fairly quiet. The restaurant was very clean. The interior is nice and there is a lovely patio area to look out onto (although it was dark, wet and windy when we were there!) The service was very good and the children (aged 2 & 9) were well looked after... More

I visited this restaurant on a Saturday night expecting it to be busy, but, there were only 6 other people in there, so that made 8 of us. The food was very average but not over priced. The staff were very attentive without being over bearing and very polite.
